Partnering is a cooperative collaborative relationship where the objective must be to jointly provide and deliver an enhanced service to the benefit of all customers and stakeholders. Some 80% of all work undertaken by Thomas Vale is now on a Partnering basis.
We have extensive experience of working with a diverse range of Clients (including many local authorities & other public bodies / organisations) under a Partnering Agreement to maximise Best Value.
